TWD: Chunky Peanut Buuter and Oatmeal Chocolate Chipsters

A great cookie was chosen this week by Stefany of Proceed With Caution.

I only made slight changes to the recipe this week. My first change was by mistake. I wasn't paying attention to what I was doing and somehow completely forgot to add the nutmeg and salt. The nutmeg wasn't missed but the salt would have brought out the flavors more. Oops!
My pantry was lacking 1 of the total 3 cups of old-fashioned oats needed so I used 1 cup of quick cooking oats. I opted to use semi-sweet chocolate chips.

The peanut butter flavor is there but only a hint. If I had used raisins instead of chocolate chips I would have thought I was eating an oatmeal raisin cookie with the strong flavor of cinnamon. And the combination of oatmeal and chocolate reminded me of an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie. In conclusion, I LOVED the 3-in1 cookie!

I strongly suggest visiting Stefany's website for the recipe and baking up a batch today. You won't be sorry!!

I liked the fact that this wasn't a straight-forward "peanut butter cookie." The PB was subtle enough to allow for the rest of the flavors to shine. Glad you liked yours!

Glad you enjoyed the cookies! I could barely taste the peanut butter myself. T wants me to double the pb next time! haha.

Sorry about leaving out the salt! Oh well, just another excuse to make them again! But the cookies look great!

Looks like they turned out well, even if you did miss a few things!
